Very sexy heels -- I received many compliments. I wore these heels for 7 hours straight and my foot wasn't hurting. I wore it with above the knee dress and made my legs look leaner and longer. I'm very happy with it.

I opened the box and didn't even try the shoe on. They looked and felt so cheap. The cork was plastic and shiny. There is no leather; it's all man-made product. This is a shoe that would sell at a shoe warehouse for $29.

Very sexy shoe, but I wear a size 5 and these shoes felt a half size larger. This will have to go back, unfortunately.

These shoes are very cute. Pretty much what I was looking for - a casual shoe in a neutral color to wear on vacation. Unfortunately, the fit was extremely sloppy and I had to return them. Very disappointed.

These are very big and very wide and I could not even walk in them - my foot felt like it was in a boat. I suggest ordering a whole size smaller than what you normally wear. Unfortunately since I wear a size 5 that is not possible for me.

These are wonderful shoes - I loved the way they looked, and they were reasonably comfortable for the height of the heel. Unlike most closed-toe heels, when you keep off your feet you feel like your feet are bare! When I took a break from dancing, I propped up my feet and felt great, whereas friends were taking off their shoes when we stopped for a break and were amazed that I did not feel the need! I have very narrow ankles so I just had a cobbler add a few more holes to the ankle strap and the straps helped keep my feet from sliding down.

The part that goes around my foot is very large. So large I have to return. My foot flops around while in the shoe. Other than that it's great.

It is everything as advertised. It fits perfect and very light weight and comfortable. Love it.

I ordered these in a 7 and they were half to a full size too big (and I wear a size 7 95 percent of the time). I reordered in a size 6, and while the size seems perfect, I also ordered a pair of the Birkenstock Madrids which I think will be more comfortable and just as stylish for nearly the same price.

These were so narrow and small that I couldn't get my foot into a size 10. I'm usually a 9.5-10 and I don't have a particularly wide foot. I thought it was crazy how small these felt. I even thought they were missed marked or shipped wrong but it said "10" right on the shoe.

These shoes are extremely comfortable, especially if you have a wide foot. However, all reviews are correct, after a few wearings they rip apart at the center seam. Too bad.

Beautiful and comfortable! You definitely need to buy this shoe. It's extremely comfortable and makes your foot look dainty/sexy/beautiful! I bought the nude for vacation and it was perfect - it matches everything and dresses outfits up!

I love these shoes! They are my go-to summer sandals. My first pair survived a rough and tumble summer and I was bummed out I had to bid them farewell. But, as fate would have it, I was at the doctor's office and another patient had them on! She said she "just ordered them" on Zappos! I ordered another pair on line the same day. I hope they stock these forever! They are awesome!

Such a beautiful and comfy shoe! Sadly, not wide enough for me, so had to return them.

What happened to your other colors in Gayle, size 4? Champagne? Gold? With the exception of Gayle, I fear that Athena Alexander is lowering it's standards by resorting to more and more man-made materials. Do they not understand that the customer will pay more for a comfortable leather shoe? I am doubly disappointed because I wear a size 4, and Athena is one of the few companies that even makes a size 4. But if the size 4 hurts my foot, the correct size does not help. Please, AA, bring back more of your Gayle leather slides and give us more like it. Read the reviews here, at Nordstrom and others--women love the Gayle slide. Enough already with thongs; thongs rub a lot of feet, so limit that style to a couple, not a half dozen! And stop with the vinyl/plastic uppers; we want leather that moves with our feet. You can't make a shoe that fits every foot but you can give us a material (leather) that MOVES with every foot. Why don't you get this? Why do you want to turn your wonderful shoe line into "Cinderella's of Boston"? quality? We loved you before. Come back to us. Leather uppers!

So disappointing. Do not buy this shoe. It runs 3 to 4 sizes small. I ordered an 11 and my friend who wears a 9 couldn't fit into my "11".

The shoe fits well and is easy to walk in, but the way the rhinestones are applied looks cheap. I needed them for in event the day they arrived so I kept them. Otherwise I would have returned them.

I bought these for my upcoming wedding. Wearing them around the house they are very comfortable and fit well. The color looks like the picture (silver) and they fit true to size.
